It was taken just this month! My sweet boy look healthy and happy!!!!! I'm unbelievably overjoyed to see him outside in the sunshine playing, without a fence around him, with even the hint of a smile on his precious face! Look at those lovely, wild woods!
The cut on his forehead is almost totally gone, which is wonderful, as children with AIDS have lower immunities, so, obviously, its harder for them to heal.
I love you, Prayer. You look big and strong and clean and happy, even if those pants are weird. I hope April is as lovely there as it is here.
ps. My boy is having a birthday this month. I'm not sure which day, so I just chose April 27 for him. I don't believe that getting older will be a problem for him in the orphanage system in the way that it is for the other RR kids. Since he isn't mentally or physically delayed in any way, I don't have any reason to think that he'd be put in an institution. So, you want to celebrate Prayer's life with me? I think I'm going to make him a cake. I'll send you a cyber piece. :)

I've decided to make a quilt.
I'm not really telling this to most people (so they won't think I'm a crazy creeper person), but I secretely want to make this quilt and then put it away in my hope chest and not look at it until I'm taking it out to put on my daughter's bed.
Anway, that is why I've chosen the fabrics that I have. They're simple and girlish and won't go out of style. In 10 years it won't be a totally weird to have a quilt like this in my house somewhere. So I stuck with small and floral even though there were some ADORABLE modern combinations with polka dots and paisley and big bright flowers. If I was having a kid right now I would have used those. But I'm not.
I'll tell you how it turns out!
ps. I've never made a quilt before. :)

"But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen."
